To no one’s surprise, Netflix has renewed Stranger Things for a fourth season, the streaming service said Monday. As part of that renewal, the service also has signed the show’s creators, twin brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, to a nine-figure overall deal.
The above trailer keeps it simple, revealing a Stranger Things 4 logo and a tagline, “We’re not in Hawkins anymore,” indicating that the show will be moving to a new locale from its fictional setting of Hawkins, Ind., from the first three seasons. A premiere date has not yet been announced.
“The Duffer Brothers have captivated viewers around the world with Stranger Things and we’re thrilled to expand our relationship with them to bring their vivid imaginations to other film and series projects our members will love,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos in a statement. “We can’t wait to see what the Duffer Brothers have in store when they step outside the world of the Upside Down.”
After season three, there had been rumors that season four would be the show’s last but there’s no indication of that in Monday’s announcement. The overall deal with Netflix allows the Duffer Brothers to develop other series beyond Stranger Things.
“We are absolutely thrilled to continue our relationship with Netflix. Back in early 2015, Ted Sarandos, Cindy Holland, Brian Wright and Matt Thunell took a huge chance on us and our show — and forever changed our lives,” the Duffers said in a joint statement Monday. “From that first pitch meeting to the release of Stranger Things 3, the entire Netflix team has been nothing short of sensational, providing us with the kind of support, guidance and creative freedom we always dreamed about. We can’t wait to tell many more stories together — beginning, of course, with a return trip to Hawkins!”
Stranger Things stars Millie Bobby Brown, David Harbour, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Winona Ryder, Noah Schnapp, Finn Wolfhard. The show is executive produced by the Duffer Brothers and produced by Monkey Massacre Productions and 21 Laps Entertainment. The Duffer Brothers serve as executive producers on the series alongside Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen of 21 Laps Entertainment and Iain Paterson.
